Jazz Begin Phasing Out Cash For Concession Options At Vivint Arena
Vivint Smart Home Arena concession stands will "phase out cash" during the course of the '19-20 season, with most of the stands planning to "only accept card -- credit, debit, or prepaid -- or mobile payments" for food and beverages, according to Andy Larsen of the SALT LAKE TRIBUNE. The arena anticipates "all concessions to be cash free" by the spring of '20. For fans who only bring cash to the game, five kiosks will be "located around the arena to convert their cash into a prepaid Mastercard." These kiosks will "require a minimum first addition of $5, but there won't be any fee to use the machines." Not all concessions stands will "accept contactless payments, such as Apple Pay," until the '20-21 season. Jazz-operated parking lots will "accept credit cards and cash, as will the ticket box office and merchandise stands." Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Tropicana Field are among the other sports venues to go cashless recently (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 10/2).
